Innsbruck (RWH) For the third and final International Monobob, Para-Bob and Skeleton School in Europe this season the International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation (IBSF) had invited to the icetrack in Sigulda, Latvia. From March 18-26, prospective pilots from Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republik took part.

For eight days the rookie pilots learned about the sleds, had daily track walks with the coaches and three training runs per day each. The IBSF provided coaches and track fees and subsidised accomodation and sled rental.

Responsible for the school was IBSF Para-Sport Coordinator Kristaps Kotans, the former bobsleigh pilot Edgars Maskalans from Latvia acted as track coach. The school was part of the IBSF Pilot Development Programme and the Emerging Nations Support. ©RWH2017
